It all started with TikTok. Creator and food reviewer @alexis.frost posted a video as part of her series reviewing what employees would order at fast food chains. This time, she went to Chipotle and got a steak quesadilla with extra cheese and fajita veggies. The employee who suggested it claimed it tastes like a Philly cheesesteak. Then, people all over the app started trying it.

The hashtags #chipotlequesadilla and #chipotlequesadilla have a combined view count of almost 24 million. Quickly, the comments of the most popular videos filled with people staying they weren't able to order the fajita veggies in a quesadilla or they couldn't order it in store, but had to do it through the app. Chipotle must've caught on as some stores put out signs saying "PROTEIN AND CHEESE ONLY ON QUESADILLA!"

The confusion only added to its virality and from there, creator and food reviewer @keith_lee125 tried both the original and a taco version. He mixed the Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette with sour cream to make an extra creamy dipping sauce that everyone wanted to order. Now, Chipotles across the country are running out of the dressing.

If you can't get your hands on the steak quesadilla with fajita veggies or the Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette, here's how you can make it at home. Inspiration from this video from @thegoldenbalance.
